world malaria day 2014


Explore the 2014 Symposium


Zagaya hosted a successful event on Friday, April 25, 2014 for the third annual Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium in Berkeley, CA. This symposium convened the area’s top malaria researchers and experts for a day of innovation, knowledge-sharing and collaboration.

With just one more year before the 2015 UN Millennium Development goal of halting and reversing the growth of malaria incidence, now is a critical time for malaria professionals to come together to make malaria elimination a reality. The Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium provides the forum for researchers, implementers, advocates and students to inspire and catalyze change for the greater good.
